BMW R 1250 RT (Base Model) Starts at:  $ 20,690/- 

BMW’s boxer story, is whole range of adventure bikes, roadsters, tourers. The RT, is all about one thing ‘the new ‘1250 ‘Shift Cam’ motor. Somewhere else they’re perform unique but the power and torque of the new engine is a true wonder and that is particularly the proof given by the RT.

Power and torque:

The old RT had been made fun of not being easy and lacking in performance and boost. Which is the reason this ‘Shift Cam’ boost to provide with an output of 14% in peak torque and 9% in power taking it up to 134bhp. Indeed, it can’t be compared with GTR1400 rocket or K1600GT stream, however now it doesn’t lack and nor leaves the rider unsatisfied.

Engine, gearbox and exhaust:

There had been a lot of unendingly debates previously, however ‘Shift Cam’ is astounding piece of work except the extra 84cc, and the boxer twin gets an all-new head, which now holds two cam lobes per valve. The first, gentler profile is for lower down performance, the second, and accelerator one, to boost performance control at higher rpms.  The consistently smooth moving system that slides between the two flaps at 5000 or as per throttle.


BMW guarantees around 59mpg for the new RT. on a ride with RT it was observed that the bicycles showed figures of least 39mpg.  However, in typical use, and depending on the sort of riding most RT riders do a great deal over 50mpg with a 300+-mile range which can be attainable.

Handling, Suspension, Chassis and Weight:

There’s no upgrades in the handling of the bike. The RT seems enormous and weighted yet from the seat has demonstrated to be a strikingly flexible, agile and drawing in rider with a lavish, stable ride, light, exact directing and altogether instinctive way. It probably won’t look it, however the RT isn’t simply worked for solace. Select the additional comfortability and choices of the Dynamic ESA system and you can choose between cruise and scratch modes at the press of a catch.

BMW R 1250 RT 2019 Side View


The new 1250 has changed from the desired Brembo radial four-cylinder caliper set-up at the front, to a practically same mechanism, yet just because with calipers marked ‘BMW’ which are really made by American newcomers Hayes. You can’t differentiate between the older and the new RT. The brake of a test ride proved to outperform the older fittings. All things being equal, there’s no making tracks in an opposite direction from the way that, particularly for an as far as anyone knows premium tourer, it’s a baffling move. Cost-slicing move from Brembo to Hayes, front calipers is irrefutably upgrade which just the professional biker will see any distinction.


There might be no progressions here too for 2019. . As in the past, the RT’s seat is luxurious, stature customizable while its ergonomics are faultless. What’s more the colossal, electrically-movable screen heated grips and seat are accessible as choices.


The base RT costs £14,415 and with it, the new motor, two riding modes (Rain and Road), ASC, slope begin and ABS Pro for standards in plain white paints, however from £18,480, the LE variant has metallic paint, ESA, additional riding modes, keyless start, sound system and the sky is the limit from there.


BMW’s 1200 RT has been for all intents and purposes unchallenged as a tourer as far back as it was first revealed in 2005. After an update in 2013 it got a noteworthy upgrade it has remained head and shoulders over the rest from that point onward, to such an extent that it wasn’t only the best tourer around it was seemingly BMW’s best bicycle, period. The thing not liked in the new RT are the Loss of Brembo brakes a retrograde step, Dowdy image and expensive fully-loaded. Amongst the most competitive rivals are Yamaha FJR1300AE BMW K1600GT Yamaha Tracer 900 GT.
